LOUISVILLE - The University of Louisville football team conducted a 80-play scrimmage in front of approximately 5,000 fans at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium on Saturday night.

Head coach Steve Kragthorpe wanted to see how some of his players responded with fans in the stands and the lights on.

"There were some good things and there were some bad things," said the first-year head coach. "Overall, I was pretty pleased. We need to watch the film and study it. We're going to be a good football team, but we need to continue to work hard."

The offense opened the scrimmage with a 13-play, 70-yard drive that ended with a one-yard run by Anthony Allen. Sophomore wide receiver Trent Guy also went 70-yards for a touchdown on a reverse. He later added a five-yard touchdown score.

Senior kicker Art Carmody booted two field goals of 31 and 46 yards.

Senior quarterback Brian Brohm threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to senior tight end Gary Barnidge and 20-yarder to Mario Urrutia.

The Cardinals are off Sunday before coming back Monday for their second double-session.
